Reviews

Praise for The Runes of the Earth

"A reawakening of a classic fantasy saga."--Library Journal

"Startlingly original antiheroic fantasy resonating with echoes of both Tolkien and Philip K. Dick."--Publishers Weekly

"An epic with page-turning intrigue."--Detroit Free Press

"Impressive...filled with splendid inventions."--Booklist

"The most important and original work of epic fantasy after Tolkien...Rich in paradox, metaphor, and symbolism, Donaldson continues his explorations into the psyches of his characters, as well as themes of estrangement, despair, guilt and responsibility. Intricately plotted...Donaldson's writing remains one of the most original and intellectually challenging works to have graced contemporary epic fantasy."--SF Site
